Barranco de Guayadeque, Gran Canaria

(4.5/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
Barranco de Guayadeque is a cliff top filled with indigenous plants and natural caves originally settled by pioneers on the island. Visit the museum for a look at many of the artifacts they left behind. You can drive or catch a tour bus to see the caves themselves, many of which are still inhabited today, though they are now wired for electricity. Some of the residents may even invite you inside. A restaurant on the cliff offers traditional Canarian fare such as fried pork, traditionally prepared boiled potatoes, and local wine.

  • long walk made the mountains, do this with good shoes and possibly a walking stick! Nice cottages in the mountains with many local animals. at the bottom of the mountain a cave restaurant, cheap and good food.

  • We went as a few friends Canaries. The landscape surprised the green vegetation and the restaurants cave and cave houses. Contrasts of colors on an amazing site that shows that Gran Canaria is not just Sun and sand.

  • The view from the place is great, however with respect to the caves - there are really not much to see here..
  • Breathtaking, it's got to be one of the most spectacular valleys in Europe.
  • Have found it as a top 10 hint for GC. Hoping the other nine are better. Probably the green valley is teasing some people.
  • Very good site for descansar.silencio, comfort; very clean! that left me amazed! Very good food! Wonderful as the family care. I would like to congratulate the great team of people who work there. To all many thanks for your care and dedication. It is to repeat until soon greetings...

  • You should certainly visit it. Wonderful views, curious restaurants made within Casas Cuevas. There are trails to walk.
